As we all know, the reactionaries of the Kuomintang have two major special agencies: the central government and the military government. The head of the military government is Dai Li, the famous "king of special agents" of the Kuomintang. Basically speaking of the top leaders of the Kuomintang Army General Bureau, the first reaction of most people is Dai Li Dai. Little is known about

that in the history of the Military Command Bureau there were several directors, including Zhu Jiahua, Chen Lifu and others, one of whom later became a general of the uprising. Dai Li was only deputy director of the Military Command until he died in an airplane crash in 1946. What's going on here?

He Yaozu, Director of Military Unification Bureau, was buried in Babaoshan Revolutionary Cemetery

in 1949. First of all, although the Military Unification Bureau was famous, it was formally formed very late until 1938. Before the emergence of military unification, Kuomintang secret agents were mainly centralized. In the forming stage, the military unification also has to develop with the resources controlled by the central unification.

Dai Li is a Huangpu student of Chiang Kai-shek's origin. He belongs to two factions, Chen Guofu and Chen Lifu brothers, who control the traditional system. The relationship between the Chen brothers and Dai Li is not good. In order not to embarrass the Chinese Communist Party in some ways, Dai Li deliberately misled the commander of the Chinese Communist Party.

Secondly, the Military Unification Bureau was established by Chiang Kai-shek following the example of the "Black Shirt Party", "Gestapo" and other fascist secret police departments, whose core principle is loyalty to leaders. But Chiang Kai-shek did not fully believe that the military command consisting of Whampoa students was loyal to the leader.

In order to control the military command, Chiang Kai-shek has always made his Secretary-General, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Assistant Room concurrently serve as the military command, while Dai Li is actually in charge of the work of the military command as Deputy Director. In this way, Chiang Kai-shek can restrict Dai Li by his official rank.
